“DELI...The real thing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Seems that there are not too many places in Florida where you can get Pastrami ot Latkes like the ones many of us enjoyed up both...Detroit for me...TooJays consistantly serves up many of the old deli favorites. We often get carry outs or eat in....most of the time very good...if they get it wrong they fix it...great customer service

“Great Deli Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you used to live in New York and now live in a place that does not remotely have NY Deli Style food, as I do, you will love Too Jays. It's a chain, and I've been to two of its members, in Stuart and Boca Raton FL. The pastrami and corned beef are wonderful; the bagels are excellent; their chicken soup with matzoh balls is very good. The borsht is good; the potato pancakes are very good. What's not to love? It can get crowded, and the day that I wanted a piece of their signature Key Lime Pie to take home, they told me they didn't HAVE ANY THAT DAY!! How could this be? The Boca location is on a street near the Boca Town Center shopping center, so a good option if you are going shopping. Open every day. Pleasant service.

Toojay's is always on our list. Love the desserts and the pastrami. We have actually had toojay's cater a couple parties for us in the past.

“AVOID at all costs!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This place serves up imitation delicatessen meals. The food looks like it was microwaved and is not fresh. The meats are not prepared fresh, but are rather packaged meats that are re-heated.

What's worse is the horrendous service. The staff are rude angry people who are not happy to be there.

The only positive are the deserts. Specifically, the mini-black and white cookies.

“Good Deli”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This is a good deli. The food is filling but completely average. It once was an institution, but with prices the way they are, this place has gone downhill. Everything is good, nothing is great. This is NOT New York.
